WoW guys I have been chasing bikes for the best part of my life, I would say, I think this is a great way of getting your speed up, I do love thhe look on their faces when they see you come behind them, I think most of them have a superiority complex, one really great biker in central park once told me to be chased by a skater for them was as bad as being chased by a woman on a bike!
that is why I love to stick it to them, I chase them in central park all the time, I always DO ASK BEFORE I DRAFT THOUGH, I think is the best way to go at it, a lot of them look uncomfortable, but once you ask them if they dont mind you drafting them, then they look back at you with a smile in their face and say SURE, sarcastically and then pick the pace, so they say sure but they mean, you wont! so I make it a point not to let them drop me for anything in the world!
the last time I chased a biker that was exactly what happened, and I said I am going to chase this biker even if I die! so he looked back and picked up the pace, He was flying on the flats and the downhills, I mean he was hamering and he was killing me, usually it is a lot easier to chase bikes on flats and downhill and it is almost imposible to stay with them uphill, so he looked back once again before the big hill in Central Park and said we were just going 32 MPH on the flat, and I was like Ok I am ready to drop anyway, and I said to myself if this u guy is going that fast on the flat he is going to anihilate me in the hill, so we started going uphill and I notice that this guy wasn't a good climber at all, so I passed him and told him, come on... his look was priceless I pushed the pace really hard from then on and he could not catch me, I stoped at the end of the lap and he stoped to chat with me, He was amazed how fast we could go and for how far! it is good I think most people see us speed skater and marble at us!
I love chasing bikes and encourage every skater to do it, just please be corteous, remember they have the right to not want to be drafted!
